This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Cream cakes and inventions. Fake gold and kung-fu. Meet Evangeline.
In 1882, “Marvellous” Melbourne was flush with gold-rush cash and the British Empire’s second biggest city.
Evangeline, a seventeen year old reformed urchin and acrobat, is settling into a new comfortable life in Melbourne with her long lost father, Professor Caldicott. But learning to be a lady is awfully dull. Then one day, the police arrive, seeking the Professor’s expertise in catching an Alchemist.
Is this a chance for Evangeline to test out her new invention and save the day? With regular breaks for tea and cream buns, of course.
Evangeline & the Alchemist is a steampunk mystery-adventure novella and the first in The Antics of Evangeline series.
